Mostly because of Julianne Moore's performance, her ability to brilliantly camouflage between strength and powerlessness in order to reveal honest layers of the human experience, Still Alice was one of the most touching and inspiring films I've seen in my life. It's more than about someone struggling with early-onset Alzheimers, though how they share that story with painful honesty, absent of shallow sentimentality is admirable. While watching this film, and days after, I was reminded of the fragility and strengths of life, memories, the dynamics involving those we love and that it's okay that they're not always perfect, and the relationship we create between ourselves and our dreams or endeavors. And it's not surprising this film was so well directed, given the life challenges in the directors' own lives. As hard as it is to watch this film, I highly recommend it, it's an important and beautiful one.
